Ryan Braun is better than you at life


Posted without comment because I am breathing too heavy.

Oil Can Boyd not thankful to Jackie Robinson


The mind boggles. Cocaine is bad, m'kayy?

Texas Ranger fans hate children and puppies


I come down on the side of giving the ball to the kid. Or at the least, stop being such festering douchebags about it.



Glory be to whatever Deity you give glory to. (Mine is Sofia Vegara's left breast and Christina Hendricks right breast, joined together like the Wonder Twins They blew a save and tied the game....

OT - The Wire

I am done. I finished it. There are spoilers here. There is discussion of a TV show here. If you don't care, or if you aren't to the end yet, stop reading. OK...we're back.   I am filled with...


Hideous time to be a fan

I am watching the NBA Finals. Usually, my sports cycle goes as follows: * January -- Football, Football, Football * February -- Key NBA games; College basketball tournaments; Spring Training...

Wojo takes on Zambrano


Thank God someone sees the truth about this loser.

Update on Super Bowl seating issue


The NFL has now made the folllowing offer: 1) $2,400 cash payment (3 times the ticket value) and a transferable ticket to Super Bowl XLVI (meaning you can sell it or give it away) OR 2) A non-transferrable ticket to ANY future Super Bowl, with plane fare and hotel accomodations paid. So, you basically can take the cash and roll the dice on whether you will want to see the game in Indy. On the one hand, it's fairly easy driving distance for anyone from Wisconsin or PIttsburgh, so your other expenses aren't as great, but on the other hand, it's bleeping Indiana No Place. Or, you basically pay in 2011 to see a Super Bowl mostly expense-free in the future. Meanwhile, there are tons or horror stories coming out about the "great treatment" the NFL supposedly provided these fans. I'm getting a little sick of the media poo-poohing this as well. Guys like Kornheiser and Wilbon are basically telling the fans to stop whining. I'm tired of sportswriters who don't have to pay a damn thing to see a game telling off fans. They have no clue.


Update on 30 for 30 Bartman doc

It's probably old news that the 30 for 30 Bartman doc got pushed back until spring. But I just listened to the Bill SImmons podcast where he discussed the latest episode "The Best that Never Was" H...


OT - THE WIRE - Season 1

This is OT. This is also full of spoilers. You've been warned. Shut up. No, I said SHUT UP. No whining. It's all in the game, yo. Now... I'm glad my friend Dan, who makes Barney cry with his...


OTish - "Jordan Rides the Bus"

I say OTish because this was a baseball documentary. I really enjoyed this documentary last night.  It was part of the "30 for 30" series on ESPN that is kicking ass and taking names. Ron Shelton,...


Delino DeShields has 27-24 record

Baseball books. "Recommendations" and "Recommendations?"

As always happens this time of year, I am really into baseball books. I just finished "The Last Hero" a biography of Henry Aaron by former Boston Herald reporter and ESPN columnist Howard Bryant....

Marlin tears up knee while attempting shaving cream pie


At least the Cubs don't have the entire monopoly on idiot players


Dodgers-Giants - Mound Visit CONTRO-versy HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I can't stand Mattingly or the Dodgers, so this made me giggle until I snorted. Snork! As for...


Steinbrenner - Hall of Fame?

I'm jumping off a Posnanski blog post here. He states that, so long as Walter O'Malley and Tom Yawkey are in, then Steinbrenner meets that standard. Here is the case for: * Team won 11 pennants...

All-Star Game ratings worst ever


Think Strasburg might have helped a little bit? I used to think baseball could survive the idiots that ran it and the paste-eaters that want to keep it traditional. Now, I'm not so sure.

Braden/A-Rod -- together again


This story may end up having a happy ending. Braden is showing he might not be the world's biggest butt-pimple by sending A-Rod a humorous gift. A-Rod, who is the Great Satan for some people in these parts, is autographing 10 of the shirts to give the charity.


Strasburg - All-Star or Not?

Yes, I know he lost last night, but he gave up one run and struck out 9. He is 2-1 with a 1.78 ERA, an 8 to 1 K/BB ratio and .95 WHIP. I also know there was a thread about this in the FanShots,...


OT -- Best 80s movie song

I have had "Ready or Not" from the Zapped soundtrack in my head for the last two hours and I can't find it on You Tube. I found "Got to Believe in Magic," though. I'd forgotten how hot the brunette...


Did fans really boo the bunt attempt in the 8th inning?

Missed the game. Was out of town all weekend and had other things to do last night. Reading some of the recaps and stories now. Did fans really boo Beckham's bunt attempt in the 8th inning? In a...


Strasburg lives up to the hype

7IP, 4H, 2R, FOURTEEN FREAKING STRIKEOUTS, No walks, 94 pitches. That 94 pitches impresses the hell out of me. He got 14 strikeouts on 94 pitches. He faced 24 batters, which means it was an...

Supposedly. Meh, I never wanted this jackass in the Hall of Fame anyway


All-purpose, all-encompassing, "When are you done?" thread

I was gone most of the night and just caught the final score. My first reaction was disbelief, and then I made a stab at anger, but it wasn't there. That's when I realized that I stopped caring. I...
